Before anyone tells me not to disable S. T I’ve confirmed in the BIOS that the drive is actually reporting it’s okay. Windows is misreading whatever reports S. I would like to know how to disable S. I’m using the RTM version of Windows 7. I know it’s possible to disable the reporting in Windows XP and Vista I just don’t remember how I did it.
I know this thread is a bit old, but perhaps someone will still find this useful. I chose “Tell me later” at least a couple dozen times and never got the third option to ignore the problem. I kept getting this popup even after disabling SMART checking in the BIOS, so yes, Windows can do its own check separate from the BIOS. Task Scheduler In Task Scheduler, expand “Task Scheduler Library” in the upper left corner. You should now see two items in the top middle frame.
You can either disable it or configure it to run less frequently than every logon. Most probably the problem is in the windows communications with the HD. Before disabling SMART reporting, I’d suggest checking to see if there are any new BIOS, HD driver or chipset driver updates for your computer. Meanwhile, or if there are no updates, get also your own S. Freeware and allows you to both check current status and perform any built-in tests supported by your HD.
